Did Jesus rise from the dead and, if so, does it matter?

The idea of a person dying, then coming back to life, is not an easy idea for many of us in the twenty-first century to get our minds around.  After all, the two things we thought we knew for certain were death and taxes.  And yet, Christians say their founder, Jesus, rose from the dead, and they’ve been saying it for 2000 years.  Are there good reasons for believing such an audacious claim?  And does it really matter whether he did or didn’t rise?  Does it affect you or me, where we are today?  Could it perhaps provide a new and profoundly hopeful way of thinking about our own inevitable deaths and what comes next?
